Recipe for Swedish Meatball Sauce

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Approximately 2 cups


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups beef broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour and whisk continuously until a smooth paste forms, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Gradually pour in the beef broth while whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens and comes to a gentle simmer.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Allow the sauce to simmer for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning according to your preference.
  5. Remove from heat and serve the Swedish Meatball Sauce warm over your favorite meatballs.
